In Chapter 28 of Anne of Green Gables, Anne and her friends decide to act out Tennyson's poem "Lancelot and Elaine" by having Anne, portraying the dead Elaine, float across the pond and under the bridge to the waiting Lancelot (Diana) and Guinevere (Jane) in Camelot. Unfortunately for Anne, her funeral vessel springs a leak, and she finds herself alone in the middle of the water on a sinking flat. Will God answer Anne's prayers to float her close enough to a bridge pile for her to scramble out? Will anyone come to Anne's rescue? And will this be the end of Anne's romantic dreaming once and for all?
